Basically saying a win here is the difference in winning 6/7 games or not. And does it matter? I would agree that if we are going to win 6 games South Carolina is a must win.

Does it matter? I would say yes it probably does on a small scale at least.

"Do you care if Arkansas beats South Carolina?

Clearly, fans want a win. That’s a given."




That's as far as I got in the article and anything after that I'm sure is just drivel.

Arkansas, if it beats the Gamecocks on Saturday in Columbia, is still staring a 7-5 record straight in the face.

I disagree with that, if we lose to USCe, I don't see how we get to 7 wins.  2-3 (0-2) with half dozen SEC games left.  Assuming we lose to Bama/Auburn, we would have to run the table to reach seven wins.

All he says is that IF we win, then we still finish at 7-5 most likely.  And if we finish at 7-5 does that change the way you feel about Bert in a positive way?  So, does it matter or not?  Are you excited and feel that we have the right coach and staff if they deliver another 7-5 season?

If you want a change, I'm not sure how to feel.  I'm pretty sure that having felt a taste of the heat and realizing that he is in over his head, Bert might be looking for a way out.  A 7-5 season might make him attractive enough to some other school to give him a way.  On the other hand, while a record worse than that would make his eventual ouster at Arkansas inevitable, it might not give him any other options but to dig in like a tick and ride it out.

I care. The only hope I have left for this season is if the Hogs REALLY start clicking this weekend. If things come together in the right way the best case scenario would be to go 6-2 to finish the year and win a bowl game. Maybe this will be like the 2015 Tennessee game that was unexpected and helped the team go on a good run.

I always want a win, no matter what other issues are on the table.  If we win at SC, we stand a decent chance of being able to beat Ole Miss, Missouri, and maybe LSU or Miss St. We still would be serious underdogs to Bama and Auburn, but a win at SC gives us a path to 7 wins and maybe even 8 if Ole Miss, Miss St, and LSU really are as down as their bad games indicate. A loss at SC probably means we cave in. Such a loss almost certainly means we'd be 2-5 after 7 games and 3-6 after 9.  This game matters we need a good win or at least a sorry win.

As nearly everyone believes, BAMA and Auburn are good, A&M decent and the rest of us in the west not so good.  Should we improve just a little, it really helps.  Some of the other LESSOR teams will improve too.  SC is a must win if this team intends to show any mettle. 

I never turn down a win, no matter.  But winning the SC game doesn't make me believe that Bret is the man.  There shouldn't be a doubt about us beating a pitiful team like SC is being billed.  The fact that there is considerable doubt speaks volumes about our program.  However, I have posted many times, our position within the SEC is far more dependent on how bad the other SEC teams are that we play in any given year than it is on how good we can be.  Our CAN BE is nearly nothing right now and for the past 25 years, ON AVERAGE, its been pitiful.

I cannot root for a loss even if it meant BB being replaced.  And very few of us believe Bret is going anywhere if the Hogs lose to SC and several others in the SEC this year. 

Someone mentioned Bret going someplace else.  That ship has sailed.  I doubt Bret could get a P5 job under about any circumstance and the others cannot afford him.  He looks like an announcer job at best.  Think they would expect him to at least shave and just look awake.

I kinda felt like we snatched defeat from the jaws of victory against the Ags.  That was a game we should have won.

My hope is that we win the turnover margin..and convert the turnovers and we return to authentic Hog uniforms...that's a winning formula!

Winning on the road in the SEC isn't easy. If we win today it means something. I'm a little miffed at the attitude that we should win today but even if we do it doesn't mean anything. It would be a win.

Stopped reading when you typed “Bert” and just assumed you are too stupid to write anything humorous so there is no hope for you to write anything of value

Yep, if there's one true key to determine what the true attitude of a particular poster is  to detect this particular name. I've never noted anyone who has anything positive to say about the man ever using this particular misspelling.

It’s not even that really. If you have a negative take, ok, but if you think calling him “Bert” is amusing then you are a child and I don’t need to read your little tantrums and petulant mewlings.
